We couldn’t be more excited to announce our brand new collab with mega influencer and Instagram queen, Olivia Bowen! Combining her signature style with classic elegance, these new pieces are sure to stay in your collection forever. We caught up with Olivia to talk all things SIWD, find out a bit more about her crazy busy life, and get some juicy insight into what the future holds for her. Trust us, you don’t wanna miss this…
Q: How did you get into what you’re doing now?
Olivia: Four and a half years ago I went on Love Island, I actually didn’t know what I wanted to do after - I told my mum I wanted to go into car sales! But, then I came out and everything just kicked off. I found myself falling into different things; doing shoots, working with brands, all sorts. It was Love Island that started it all.
Q: What was your dream job when you were growing up?
Olivia: I don’t think I really had a dream job. I was never one of those that were like “Oh, I wanna be a fireman”, but I always loved fashion and studied it in school as well as photography and art. I always knew I wanted to be involved with fashion, so it worked out quite well really.
Q: Tell us three interesting facts about yourself.
Olivia: Oh, f*cking hell, haha! I used to dance; ballet, jazz, tap - when I was younger. I can also horse ride and my party trick is doing the crab and walking along upside down... I have to be really drunk to do that, though.
Q: Have you got a secret talent?
Olivia: I can do a belly dance with my tongue, which is another party trick, haha.
Q: How did you find it working with Say it with Diamonds?
Olivia: Just so lovely! It’s really important to me that the brands that I work with are people that I get on with. I believe in their message, I believe in what they’re doing, and I like their products. I think it ended up being such a nice partnership because I’ve been so involved. They listened to my ideas and we got on well, so it’s just been really easy and really lovely.
Q: What’s your fave SIWD piece(s) apart from your own?
Olivia: Haha, anything that’s mega shiny and big! It would have to be the Pear Moissanite Ring. I’m not bothered whether it’s real diamonds or not, I’m not one of those people who has to have that - if it looks the same, it doesn’t matter, does it. I also love the initial necklaces and the Me & Mine Earrings. But, anything sparkly really. Which is basically the whole website.
Q: How would you describe yourself and your style?
Olivia: I can either go one way or the other. I’m either really tomboy-ish; never have my nails done, walking around with my hair scraped back, and I’ll wear Alex’s clothes drowning me, or I can be really girly. It depends, I’m either completely glammed up or I’m a tomboy.
Q: Have you got any plans for the future?
Olivia: I know I want to be happy and successful. I did just get my own horse, which is something that I’m really getting into now, and I’d really love to compete her next year. Kids are on mine and Alex’s radar, but not what we’re currently prioritising. I just want to be happy, have fun, and continue working with people that I love. You have to follow where life takes you.
